Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
Console Foundations - Processes
I'm stuck at the following point (about 3:58 in video):
1) treehouse ~$ top; 2) ?; 3) F; 4) press key (not specified which key); 5) F - shows "*K %CPU = CPU usage" marked 6) N - shows "*N =%MEM = memory usage (RES) marked; 7) enter.
At this point, I see my new sorting list, but I can't go back to the menu to select "a" to change sort to PID column. How to I go back & forth between the menu and the sorted list? You don't mention which key can or should be pressed to toggle between the menu & the sorted list.
Each time you are in the listing screen you can press F to bring up the sort screen.
So on entering top you can press F then a to sort by Process ID (PID) Once this is showing you can press F then k to sort by Percentage CPU (%CPU) as it was when you started. Each time you press the F option you can choose a new sort.
Hope that makes sense.
